-Porter Foods (, the leading online gourmet and speciality food retailer and distributor, offers the Italian touch at La Dolce Vita-

Working with only the highest quality producers from around the world, Porter Foods retails and distributes a range of Italian products to foodies across the UK including Vincotto PrimitivO Vinegar, the mellow balsamic vinegar from Apulia, which is made using the rich, full-bodied red grapes from the Salento region in the heel of the Italian boot!

The Vincotto PrimitivO range will be available for sampling and sale at La Dolce Vita, London’s largest and only Italian festival for 2008. Visit the National Puglia stand (V23) to taste the delicious Italian specialities for yourself.

Vincotto PrimitivO ( was a firm favourite with the Romans and food-loving Italians continue to delight in the preservative- and additive-free vinegar today. Deliciously good for your health, Vincotto (cooked wine in Italian) is wonderful served with chunks of Italian bread and extra virgin olive oil, or added to sauces, pasta and meat dishes. Vincotto PrimitivO is available for sale directly from

There are three varieties of Vincotto PrimitivO to mix and match with your favourite recipes or simply serve with bread and olives:

• Vincotto PrimitivO Vinegar - similar to a high-quality, mellow balsamic vinegar, but with additional culinary and health-promoting properties.

• Vincotto PrimitivO - a slightly sweet, mellow syrup that is excellent for desserts and cocktails.

• Vincotto PrimitivO Mild Pepper Sauce - can be used to spice up a wide variety of dishes.

Vincotto PrimitivO is created according to an old family recipe using the same Primitivo grapes that are used by wine producers Terra del Sud. The combination of high quality grapes and the traditional manufacturing method provides a higher than average level of resveratrol compared to standard balsamic vinegars. Resveratrol acts as a natural flavour enhancer so Vincotto brings out the natural flavours of food.

For a true taste of Italy, visit La Dolce Vita between 13th and 16th March 2008 at Kensington Olympia, London and sample some Vincotto PrimitivO or go to for more details and online purchasing.
